World History - Mr. Fahey

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! It will be a very interesting and challenging one due to the current situation regarding the Covid pandemic. As for the academics, seventh grade will pick up with the Fall of Rome, go through the Middle Ages in China, Japan, Africa, and Europe, then finish with the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and the Age of Exploration.

 

Now a little about me...I have been teaching since 1998 in the Social Studies and Health Education fields. My experience has been with all grades seventh through twelfth. I currently hold a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Florida with many credits in several different disciplines. I am originally from Key West, Florida, and moved to Chattanooga with my wife, Jennifer, in 2006. We have one daughter, Stella, entering 5th grade this year. My family and I have a deep love for travel and I have been to 16 different countries. In 2012, I was awarded a Fund For Teachers Fellowship, which paid for me to travel to France and the Netherlands to research Human-Environment Interaction throughout history. That knowledge has become an important part of my teaching in the years since. I am also the sponsor for #NPMMTravels.  In 2018, I took 12 students to Paris, Avignon, and Barcelona.  In 2019, I led a group of 24 to Munich, Germany, Innsbruck, Austria, and Lucerne, Switzerland.  The trips have been amazing and I truly feel that international travel changed the lives of the students who went with me.  Our 2020 trip to Dublin, Belfast, and Edinburgh was cancelled due to the pandemic.  Our 2021 trip to the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium has 15 currently signed up to travel and is still on as of now, but is subject to change.  If you have any interest in your child (and you?) participating in these adventures, please contact me at faheytravels@gmail.com.   I am looking forward to my 12th year at Normal Park and all of the fun adventures the seventh grade has planned!
